The Itch.

by Dez

I’m not sure if I’m alone on this or not, but I know I’m not the  only cutter here.

I’ve been a cutter for almost a year now and I have to admit my life has gone to shit since then. I’ve tried quitting in the past but I get this…itch…when I don’t cut for awhile.

See, I cut on my thighs and if I don’t cut there’s this unreachable itch that over takes my legs. I want to scratch but there’s nothing to scratch! The only thing that’ll make it go away is to use my razor. I’ve tried to ignore, but sometimes it’s too strong and painful.

Am I alone on this? Am I the only one that gets that horrible feeling?

If you do have any advice as to how to make it go away or how to ignore it better?

you are definitely not alone in this. i got put in a mental hospital for excessive cutting and they put me on this drug that actually helped. they use it for people who are addicted to heroine and shit. it cuts off the nerve receptors or something when you cut because cutting is addictive. ive been off of it for a while but it definitely helped and i dont get the urge as much or as strongly anymore. what i did was used rubber bands and ice which helped a little bit but in the end youre just going to have to use your willpower and your own personal inner strength to stop. i know its hard and although ive gotten better with not cutting as much i still do cut. its a hard process to quit but maybe you can try “The Butterfly Project” which helps some people stop self harming (just made shit worse for me but everyone is different) best of luck though!!!

^ sunflower mentioned The Butterfly Project. It actually helped me a little, you should give it a try.
I used to cut on my thighs too, I did it for 4 years (age 14-18) until I decided that I needed to change. I threw my last blade in the trash and started to use my nails for a while. but i failed on my 20th birthday. I cut so deep that now I have a horrible scar to remind me that I need to keep strong. Its not big but deep and when I feel like cutting I just look at it.
